The book is an introduction to the issues about place and location that interest geographers and other feminist scholars. It combines the careful definition and discussion of key concepts and theoretical approaches with a wealth of empirical detail the ways in which gender and place are interrelated at a range of scales from the body to the nation-state, showing how spatial divisions have been a crucial part of the establishment, maintenance and reshaping of gendered differences from industrial urbanization to the end of the millennium.
